The Varsity Series has partnered with the Bristol Empire Dragon Boat Club to bring you something really quite different...a UWE v Bristol staff dragon boat race which will take place in the middle of the Varsity Boat Race. Each Uni will have a 20 seat dragon boat to fill with members of your respective sports dept & SU...a minimum of 8 of those crew members must be women & you need a crew truly of all shapes & sizes....it's not how strong you are but all about your timing & technique to move the boat.
So...we are looking for prospective crew members &|or those of you who fancy trying something a little bit new...the Empire Dragons can cater for in excess of 80 of you. Sign up & come down to our open try it for size day free of charge, where you will be taught the nuances of sticking your paddle in the water...steering...& the banging of the drum that makes your boat move like a synchronised turbo charged millipede, by club members. What better way to spend a few hours, than trying something new out on the beautiful River Avon & blasting the socks off those January blues for another 11 months ??.
